Strawberry Cheesecake


 The first time I ate strawberry cheesecake was in London in 2000. At first I was a bit reluctant to try it because the meal was full and I found myself unable to eat anything at all. However, I ended up being convinced to taste it and I can not say if it was the special occasion, the particular company or the divine taste of it, but the truth is that I was so conquered and rendered to this sweet that few were the times that I went back to repeat , not to detract  the uniqueness of the moment and only now have I dared to bake it. It was worth the wait!

 Ingredients:
  •  1 can of condensed milk 
  •  1 package of cream
  •  Gelatin sheets  - 10
  •  1 package of cheese Philadelfia
  •  2 packets of cookies
  •  120 gr butter
  •  strawberry jam
  •  fresh strawberries

Crush the biscuits and add the melted butter, mix well and place in the bottom of a tart mould. Refrigerate while preparing the custard. Soak the gelatine leaves in four tablespoons of water and drain well before melting them in 1 dl milk. Whip the cream with three tablespoons of sugar and set aside. Beat the cheese for a few seconds with the condensed milk and stir in the sour cream, add the melted gelatin and pour over the cookies base taking it to the fridge to solidify [I left it there for 2 days and served it in  the evening of the second day]. Remove and spread the strawberry jam and garnish with some fresh strawberries. Bring back to the fridge and serve it chilled.




A primeira vez que comi cheesecake de morangos foi em Londres, em 2000. No início estava um bocadinho relutante em experimentar pois a refeição tinha sido farta e eu achava-me incapaz de comer fosse o que fosse. No entanto, acabei por ser convencida a provar e não posso precisar se foi da ocasião especial, da companhia em particular ou do sabor divinal, mas o certo é que fiquei de tal modo conquistada e rendida a este doce que poucas vezes o voltei a repetir, para não desvirtuar a singularidade daquele momento e só agora me atrevi a reproduzi-lo. Valeu a pena a espera!

Ingredientes:


  • 1 lata de leite condensado
  • 1 pacote de natas
  • 10 folhas de gelatina
  • 1 embalagem de queijo Philadelfia
  • 2 pacotes de bolacha Maria
  • 120 grs de manteiga
  • doce de morango 
  • morangos frescos
Triture as bolachas e junte a manteiga derretida, mexa bem e coloque no fundo de uma tarteira. Leve ao frigorífico enquanto prepara o creme. Demolhe as folhas de gelatina em quatro colheres de sopa de água e escorra bem, antes de derretê-las em 1 dl de leite. Bata as natas com três colheres de sopa de açúcar e reserve. Bata o queijo uns segundos com o leite condensado e junte as natas, adicione a gelatina derretida e deite sobre a base de bolacha.Leve ao frigorifíco para solidificar [eu coloquei 2 dias e só servi à noite do 2º dia]. Retire e espalhe por cima o doce de morango com pedaços e decore com alguns morangos frescos. Leve de novo ao frigorífico e sirva bem fresco.
